Part I Presentations of You Art, Due: Day 2, August 27
Part II Write Up, Due: Day 3, September 1


Summary

Your will take inventory of your art and consider the work that best illustrates your current focus or direction. You will also do research on other artists who have connections to your work.


Objectives

For students take inventory of their current artistic direction.
For students to start understanding what they do best in imaging.
For students to begin to develop their artistic signature.
For students to start to understand what they want to say or do with their imaging.
For students to recognize other historical or contemporary artists who share similar techniques, content, or approaches with their own work.


Methodology

PART I
Look at the important art that you have created so far and choose the work that best illustrates your current focus or direction. This could be an aesthetic direction, a technique you want to develop, or a theory you want to push further. The work does not have to be imaging, but you need to relate it to your work in imaging.

Bring this work to class on Day 2 and present it to the class, explaining what you have done and what you would like to work on.

Only bring a few works, no more than can be covered in 10 minutes.

Be prepared to show your work right away as we cannot waste time between presentations. If need be, load your work in your class folder on the server (ARTC 423).

PART II
After reviewing your work, TYPE a short (1-2 pages) write-up that contains the following:
1) Your current artistic and technical focus and how that applies to imaging.
2) At least two artists whose work you identify with on some level. These artists can inspire you artistically, conceptually, technically, or any other way you can think of.

Grading

You will be graded on the work and thought you put into organizing your work for the presentation and the amount of thought you put behind trying to determine an imaging direction. I will also consider how well you presented your ideas to the class.

You will also be graded on how well you wrote up your current artistic direction, the research you did on other artists and how they relate to your work and your SPELLING and GRAMMAR!

This assignment will be averaged with equal weight to the other assignments except the final, which will have a weight of 3.
